What is Badgr?
Badgr is an open source badge issuing, management and user achievement tracking platform. Badgr allows users to issue and manage a standardized type of digital badges called Open Badges. Open Badges are a flexible and portable way to recognize learning in addition to traditional qualifications and professional accreditation. A digital badge serves both as recognition of learning or achievement and digital proof of that accomplishment. Badges empower people to take their learning achievements with them, wherever they go, to build a rich picture of their lifelong learning journey.
How does Badgr work?
The process of creating a badge typically involves three tasks:
- Offering a learning or other experience with an associated assessment.
- Creating a badge to represent that experience using the Badgr tool.
- Awarding the badge upon successful completion of badge criteria.
